96:1  Recite: In the name of yoursg Lord Who created—
96:2  created man from a clinging form.
96:3  Recite: And yoursg Lord is the Most Noble,
96:4  the One Who taught by the pen—
96:5  taught man what he never knew.
96:6  But no! Indeed, man surely exceeds all limits,
96:7  for he sees himself self-sufficient.
96:8  Indeed, to yoursg Lord is the ultimate return.
96:9  Have yousg seen the one who forbids
96:10  a servant when he prays?
96:11  Have yousg seen whether he was rightly guided
96:12  or commanded to mindfulness (of God)?
96:13  Have yousg seen whether he disbelieved and turned away?
96:14  Has he not realized that Allah sees?
96:15  But no! Surely, if he does not desist, We will drag (him) by the forelock—
96:16  a lying, wrongful forelock.
96:17  Let him call on his gang;
96:18  We will call the guards of Hell.
96:19  But no! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and draw near.
